According to this article from Salem News, people smarter than you and possibly smarter than me claim they have solved the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle!
“Oceanographic surveyors of the sea floor in the area of the Bermuda Triangle and the North Sea region between continental Europe and Great Britain have discovered significant quantities of methane hydrates and older eruption sites.”
Wait… so you’re telling me that the Bermuda Triangle, arguably the greatest natural/supernatural mystery of this planet, responsible for the disappearances and deaths of thousands of people… is a giant tub fart?

“The two hypothesized that large methane bubbles rising from the ocean floor might account for many, if not all, of the mysterious disappearances of ships and aircraft at specific locales around the world.”
Why yes, I believe that is exactly what is being articulated.
You may be thinking, “Never has any mystery been resolved with such a boring-sounding (and potentially stinky) conclusion,” but wait, “what’s this?” you say:
“The methane—normally frozen at great pressure as gas hydrates embedded within subterranean rock—can become dislodged and transform into gaseous bubbles expanding geometrically as they explode upwards. When these bubbles reach the surface of the water they soar into the air, still expanding upwards and outwards.”
Oh. My. God. Giant water fart bombs.
Even weirder, check out these [lastfm]Fleetwood Mac[/lastfm] lyrics from their song “Bermuda Triangle”:
“I guess you’ve heard about the Bermuda Triangle,
there’s something going on
It might be a hole down in the ocean
Yeah or a fog that won’t let go.”
“A fog that won’t let go”? If that’s not a euphemism for a fart, I don’t know what is.
